I've lived in this area for years and never even knew about this place. I'm glad the City is takingRead More care of it.

I've lived in Evanston for almost 17 years and I never knew about it either. I'll have to check itRead More out.

Asphalt Bike/Walking Trail

I think treated planking to create a nice sidewalk through the area would be better. Miking throughRead More the area should be BANNED. SAFETY ISSUES OF THE BIKERS SHOULD BE BIG CONCERN.

Jim, I certainly don't mean to offend though asphalt sidewalks give us all more ailment than crushedRead More gravel. Asphalt, as is well documented, is bad for the environment, the economy and hence also our kids (of which I have 3 who love to ride their bikes as do I). I've yet to see a report evidencing increased injury when riding on crushed gravel versus asphalt. Real safety comes when we rid ourselves of the toxic pollutants and dependance on oil that comes with the use of this material.

I say the whole issue goes on hold until we hire an expensive consultant . In the mean time weRead More commission special paver bricks to be made. These bricks will need to meet several stingent criteria. First we need "smart" bricks, each having a wifi enabled sensor that will control the physical properties of each paver brick and report back to someone who can monitor the stones. The bricks need to be "green" and help the environment. They can be fitted with small solar powered lasers that sentiently detect and automatically zap and incinerate any litter that might dropped by passing bicyclists within a 10 foot perimeter from the edge of the trail. The bricks will also need small reservoirs that can be filled with organic fertilizers and nutrients that when rained on will leach nutrients back into the surrounding earth. Next the bricks will need to have special magnetic properties that will repulse falling bicyclists and upright them so no one can fall and skin their knees. The bricks need to be very soft so that if the magnetic repulsion system fails and a poor falling rider hits the surface, their fall will be stopped by the soft, energy absorbing surface. Something like a padded brick. We can fine tune the magnetic properties of the bricks to prevent riders from driving at unsafe speeds. The bricks will also be able to monitor the traffic patterns and track every single bicyclist and any other user of the trail. Then we will need a large government grant to hire and train a special team of trail maintainers. All of this after of course we start yet a new government agency equipped with the latest in computer technology that will monitor and run the entire thing. And then we can raise taxes or put a small toll booths at various points for the trail and mandate that all bicycles be equipped with a an electronic "trail pass" that will charge for usage. OR we can simply asphalt the top like the Skokie trail south of this section does. I am forced the skokie portion of the trail when I bike...but it is dangerous. I must report that the ashphalt hurts when I fall off my bike, and the nice green grass that grows right up to the edge of the paved trail has mutated because of the chemicals in the asphalt leaching into it. Last week a mutated carnivorous weed snapped at me and chased me 1/4 mile up the trail. Luckily I escaped. So lets spend a lot of money and make this a federal project.
